Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself; I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it. ~Groucho Marx
This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

Rainy and happy
A cool rainy Monday morning for my walk today and another day for me to wear those rain paints of mine and carry the golf umbrella. After being away from the lake for two days, it was nice to walk around it again. I try to stay away on the weekends because there are just too many people there. I only saw three other people around the lake today and it was nice to have the whole place to myself. I saw a few deer, the white egret, rabbits, and the heron I saw flying low over the stream along the path to the lake. There was also some kind of hawk sitting up in the tree and it flew off as I walked by. Another seven mile walk today.
On Saturday we stopped in at a new store that just opened called Hobby Lobby. It was fun to walk around and look but it is just another Michaels or JoAnns though a lot bigger, at least the one here is. We were a bit disappointed because we thought they would have some other hobbies there, like remote control boats and airplanes. They have a lot of home decorations there too and when we spotted this
it seemed just the thing for me. It's even red, my favorite color. :-)
I was going to go out and about today but it is such a wet rainy day that I'm just going to stay home. Not sure what I'm going to do. First thing though is to eat some breakfast. It's already just past 10 and I'm really hungry.
Enjoy your Monday. Hope its sunny where you are.
